Is Nintendo under- or over-valued?
Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value.
Nintendo's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Nintendo shares trade at around 14x recent earnings.
However, Nintendo's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the electronic gaming & multimedia industry or those of similar companies.
Nintendo's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.1781. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Nintendo's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
However, it's sensible to consider Nintendo's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.
Nintendo's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $580.2 billion (£427 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Nintendo's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
To put that into context you can compare it against similar companies.

|Operating margin TTM||35.27%|
|Gross profit TTM||$970.5 billion|

Nintendo share dividends
Dividend yield: 3.98% of stock value
Forward annual dividend yield: 3.98% of stock value
Dividend payout ratio: 24.15% of net profits
Nintendo has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 3.98% of its share value annually.
Nintendo has paid out, on average, around 24.15% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 3.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nintendo's case, that would currently equate to about $2030 per share.
While Nintendo's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that the company is investing more in its future growth.
Nintendo's most recent dividend payout was on 15 July 2016. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Nintendo's dividend yield is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
- Sony Group Corporation (SNE.US): 0.44% (0.44% forward annual dividend yield)
- Microsoft Corporation (MSFT.US): 0.81% (0.81% forward annual dividend yield)
Have Nintendo's shares ever split?

Share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Nintendo's shares have ranged in value from as little as $52.95 up to $79.4889. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (PINK average) beta is 1, while Nintendo's is 0.6524. This would suggest that Nintendo's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
To put Nintendo's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
